My name is Mike and I just moved into a house with a pool. I'm not too sure what to expect. It's really nice now and I want to keep it that way.
There's alot of info. on the internet on how to do everything, and I wanted to get everyone's take on this. I talked to a local pool guy who takes care of pools on the side. He's been doing it for about 12 years now, and has taken me to a couple of local pools he's cleared up from being really green.
He says that alot of the information I would get from forums like this are from guys who may have one pool, but that's it. He also said that the other guys who give opinions have only worked in pool stores talking about chemicals and answering questions. They haven't really done the real work of clearing up a pool. He said not all of them, but most.
All I want to do is keep my pool clean so my kids can swim in it. This forum has alot of great info. and I think you know what you're talking about, but does the pool guy I talked to know what he's doing?. Anything can help. This seems to be a really good place to go for pool stuff.
